THE owners of this penthouse Aria apartment were attracted by the development’s location.
“Aria is central to everything: Swanbourne and Cottesloe beaches, Claremont Quarter, private schools, Cottesloe Golf Course, Challenge Stadium, UWA, Claremont Showground, Lake Claremont and 15 minutes from the CBD,” they said.
“It’s a location with all the right connections, including bike paths and bus services.”
They also liked the opportunity to enjoy resort-style living in a secure, low maintenance, luxurious sanctuary.
“Aria is a remarkable relaxation oasis, with infinity pool, spa, superb gym, yoga and massage studios, sauna and steam rooms, private dining and entertainment facilities and dedicated wine cellar,” they said.
“It’s a complete escape from the outside world – every day feels like a holiday.”
They bought the residence off-the-plan and set out to “create the ultimate in apartment living with high quality appliances, designer fittings, abundant space and commanding views that are unparalled in Perth”.
The home is built over two levels with an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area on the lower floor.
Whether you are preparing dinner in the state-of-the-art kitchen with island bench, quartz benchtops, Miele appliances and white gloss and pale timber veneer cabinetry or relaxing by the ethanol-fuelled fireplace on a custom-made stone plinth in the living zone you will be able to enjoy the spectacular outlook through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows.
Or you can step out to the wrap-around balcony and admire the city views while dining alfresco or enjoying a quiet moment at the end of a busy day.
There are also two bedrooms and two bathrooms on this floor, including the master with walk-through robe, ensuite, sliding door to the balcony and picture window that frames the cityscape.
The owners said it felt like they were sleeping in a glamorous hotel.
There is more to marvel at on the mezzanine level with a bespoke home office and retreat that opens to a terrace with views of the Perth skyline to the Darling Ranges.
It has a built-in kitchen and six-person hydrotherapy spa.
The owners said it offered the ultimate in outdoor living and entertaining.
“We especially enjoy watching the Australia Day and Claremont Showground fireworks while relaxing in the spa,” they said.
